Topical satire Re-Dub! has been commissioned by Sky. Alistair McGowan (Big Impression) and a team of established impressionists will give an alternative take on the most talked about stories of the moment.

The impressionists will re-voice a variety of the latest clips from the realms of sport, news, politics and entertainment. The show will quite literally be putting words in the mouths of a host of famous faces.

"Re-Dub! is a gloriously silly and funny take on the world of news and celebrity from the mouth of Alistair McGowan and a host of brilliant mimics accompanying real world footage. We can promise a fun-packed half hour of pure joy,” said Phil Edgar-Jones, Sky’s Head of Entertainment.

He added, “When the Avalon team showed us their initial piloted pitch for Re-Dub! I couldn’t finish my crisps as we were laughing till we cried.

From Avalon, Executive Producer Richard Allen-Turner said, “We are delighted to be working with Sky on Re-Dub!, a new comedy show that along with Russian Twitterbots, helps further conflate fake news and real reports for viewers’ entertainment.”

Avalon, producers of Task​master, The Russell Howard Hour and Catastrophe will produce the new ten-part Sky Original Production, which is expected to hit our screens later this year.
